Humane dog population management

HUMANE DOG POPULATION MANAGEMENT

Before the intervention of Animal Nepal, overpopulation of stray dogs in Lalitpur district had been dealt in an inhumane and ineffective manner (through culling and poisoning). In 2010, we initiated humane, effective and sustainable solutions to the problem: i) sterilization of stray dogs; ii) treatment; iii) vaccination; and iv)community education. In order to further increase our efficiency and effectiveness, we launched a Mobile Treatment Programme in 2016.

 

Objectives of the programme:

  • CNVR programme in shelter and communities
  • Treatment and rehabilitation of sick and injured community dogs
  • Anti Rabies Vaccination (ARV)
  • Community education programme
